The original recording has been completely re-mastered and re-engineered to provide an integrated musical sound.
Recorded in English.
REVIEW (by Benjamin Williams)
The original self-produced version of this recording was a wonderful gift to the English-speaking Orthodox Church, and to those interested in Byzantine Chant. The Liturgica Music version presents a complete selection of Lenten and Holy Week hymnology in a high quality recording. Few recordings of Byzantine Chant in English contain the principal hymns of Great Lent or Holy Week, and this one contains all of the major hymns of this most important period in the Church's liturgical cycle. The quality of the recording, editing and mastering are very good, the hymn text is sung with bright clarity, and it is a recording that will move you to listen to it over and over again!
